Subject Re: Console for Tomcat
Date Fri, 12 Mar 2010 00:13:11 GMT

I'm continuing the study to see what type of Graphical (RIA) Console
could be developed for Tomcat, and I have spoken with other Pivot
developers, but at this point we need some help from you to better
understand some key points that make that application really useful.

JMX could be the way to exchange data with Tomcat, but do you think
it's more useful a Monitoring (all at Runtime, no persistent changes)
via JMX, or a Configuration Application (and in this case we could
load/save config files directly if on the same host, or better calling
some service exposed by Tomcat and let it the load/save work) ? Or
both ?

That's why this was my first idea for some simple features to
implement, and this could be the beginning.
Then, as suggested, a step further could be the ability to handle a
Cluster of Tomcat, but here probably we'll need the support of someone
of you to avoid pitfalls.

Do you prefer to continue the discussion here or in other way (another
Tomcat mailing list, or other) ?

Comments are (very) welcome ...

Thanks again,
